I took several pictures of the Christmas tree in downtown St. Paul. I missed the tree lighting this year. Christmas was relocated this year. The tree is usually in Rice park but the park is undergoing a major renovation.
This year’s tree is at Landmark Plaza on St. Peter street which is on the other side of Landmark Center. It wasn’t hard to find.
It wasn’t until I had taken a bunch of pictures and was halfway home that I noticed my lens was set to manual focus. That would have worked out fine if I had manually focused. \

Union Depot Christmas tree
I’ll be back to get some more pictures of the tree in front of the union depot in St. Paul. It does look better when it is surrounded by snow.
Tree – Union Depot
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas too.
Union depot downtown St. Paul
Doesn’t look like Minnesota in December with the green grass. We have had a little snow and a lot of rain and above freezing weather. The tree still looks nice. I used my widest wide angle lens to get the shot.
Rice Park Tree lighting
Usually Rice park lights get turned on after thanksgiving but not this year. They lit it all up last weekend and I missed it. I am just guessing that the tree lighting and fireworks looked just like they did when I took this photo in 2014. The photos I have taken in Rice Park over the years are my most stolen photographs.
A giant nutcracker and some angels used to be part of the holiday decorations in rice park. They are not there this year. Where did they go?
